Team India pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who is known for his toe crushing yorkers and sharp bouncers, was on Saturday seen emulating the bowling action of former Indian leg-spinner Anil Kumble at the nets in Chennai and the 27-year-old pretty much nailed it.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Twitter handle has shared a video where Bumrah can be seen rolling his arms over and emulating spin legend Kumble. At the same time, the BCCI also came up with a video compilation of a few bowling spells of ‘Jumbo’ from the early 2000s.

Bumrah has recovered from the abdominal strain due to which he missed the last game of the recently-concluded Test series against Australia. He will next be seen in action in the upcoming four-match Test series against England, beginning on February 5 in Chennai.

Anil Kumble’s cricketing career

The Karnataka-born has 619 Test scalps to his name. He is the third-highest wicket-taker in red-ball cricket after Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralitharan (800) and Aussie spin wizard Shane Warne (709) respectively. Kumble had bid adieu to international cricket in 2008. He is currently a commentator/analyst and head coach of Kings XI Punjab in the IPL.
